Thursday Mornings in Lent

Each Thursday morning (beginning 11th February) the Eucharist will be celebrated (according to the Book of Common Prayer) in St Catherine’s Chapel at 7:30am. Getting up early (in the dark) may seem like an inconvenience but it is good discipline and an opportunity to be with Jesus, under the form of bread and wine, in a quiet and reflective setting. A light breakfast will be available after the service.
